I'm clearly out of practice at reading tarot cards as the reading I've just done for my self as totally stumped me. On the one hand, it seems to be saying that my future isn't very positive and then on the other it says the outcome is fab. What does everyone make of this then?

The World 7 Wands [R] Page Coins [R] Judgement
5 Swords [R]
Ace Swords
Hermit
The Tower
Emperor [R]
The Chariot
2 Swords [R]

Just cos it isn't clear (pretty impossible to be TBH) - the 5 of swords, hermit and emperor are stacked in that order with the emperor on top...technically horizontally too I guess.

very much my way of reading things, also cheating slightly and using the comments from you and cryx about spirituality...

(hermit) You're looking for your own particular path and 'wisdom'. (emperor 5 swords) This will take self discipline and also the ability to recogise when people are stringing you along, trying to sell you something false (or at least false for you). (2 swords 7 wands) this makes your path/position harder: indecision - which way?! - and also means you'll need to stand your ground upon occasion even if you're not convinced there is a right answer. Remember: 'yeah, well, um, it works for me *shrug*' is a valid answer in some situations!
(World, page pent) everything is laid out before you - like a picnic with too many mysterious dishes and although you yearn to be both scholar and teacher you're finding it hard enough to be a scholar. (chariot) Despite this you can prevail - if you want to. You will have to accept that sometimes there aren't clear answers to outcomes or battles, what matters (metaphorically) is that you turned up with your sword and shield, not the actual winning or not but the taking part =) (tower) around you people will fail: that is to say they will not be able to teach you your path - only you really can, but by listening to them and accepting the limitations of their philosophies, you will learn. (ace swords) equal love and hate - grand conquest: this quest is wonderful and frustrating and you hope the wonder will outweigh the frustration. (judgement) time for your soul - you may not get the grand amazing answer you hope for, but all that time and effort you put into seeking will teach you lots and be worthwhile of the effort anyways.

Thanks.

Hmmm...I can't imagine myself being a teacher, but I guess that's to be expected given my current level of knowledge. The picnic bit kinda has it backwards, cos I don't feel like I have that many options in front of me. Or maybe it's more that I have so many that I can't see that I have any?

Still, you pretty much seem to be agreeing with cryx that I've got potential, I just need to make use of it.
